Finish A Long Q2

I should probably be hanging my head in shame as I didn't get a single thing on the Q1 list finished! That said I have almost pieced a quilt top from blocks on the last list and started a new baby quilt which is just waiting to be basted properly so I can quilt and bind. So it's not like I've done nothing in what has been a very busy quarter socially. This weekend coming is the first free Saturday I've had in months and that's only free because I've been unwell had had to re-arrange my plans! So onto the list!



Things I'd quite like to get finished. Here goes:

1. Fancy Dr Who Scarf - no optimistic of a finish because I have to generate left overs to add to this!

2. Birdie panel made by the last bee I was in. Wanted to make this into a cushion but I'm not sure it's a suitable shape or whether one of the panels would hold up to being a cushion.

3. X&+ quilt. Totally doable she says bravely. It's about half done top wise.

4. Highland Coo panel to turn into a cushion

5. Hexie flowers to turn into a knitting project bag.

15.  Liberty Apple Core sewing organiser - (I'd have finished this at the weekend but I can't find my rotary cutter. The one in the picture is an old one and blunt!)

16. PJ Bottoms. I made these in class at the Fat Quarterly retreat. I think they only need length sorting and hemming - presuming they still fit because I think these were from 2013!

17. Scrappy Trip Quilt. I'd got some suitable strips left from making Chiefs quilt and had cut some more and started to sew them together. But then I ran out of steam!

18. My precious large star quilt. About 6 - 7 years ago these large star quilts were every where and I pulled some precious fabric started cutting and even got the back ground fabric in a zingy shade of Klona. But then I couldn't work out how to cut the blocks well given the size would be larger than my cutting mat!

19. Low Volume blocks - had visions of a vintage/modern heritage style quilt in low volume colours with the odd pop of colour. These have now pretty much been sewn into a quilt top. I just need to add a bottom band and finish into a quilt!

20. Baby quilt - the top is pieced and I've cut wadding and backing and sandwiched them together - just not basted. Once I've done this I can get on with quilting.
